Come along for the ride with the 1999 New York-Penn League Champion Hudson Valley Renegades. Hear from the players and coaches who made it happen, including superstar Josh Hamilton and many other household names! You´ll also get the true feel of minor league baseball, going behind the scenes with umpires, front office executives, scouts, former players and many more! Put yourself in the dugout, clubhouse and team bus to see what really goes on with a minor league baseball team! See what kind of impact Josh Hamilton, the number one pick in the draft, had on the 1999 Renegades. Truly a must for any baseball fan who wants to be closer than ever to the game! This storybook season took place in the summer of 1999. It was my final season as the play by play voice of the Hudson Valley Renegades, a Tampa Bay Devil Rays Short Season A-Ball affiliate. I had no idea what kind of ride I was in for, but I paid close attention just in case. This season in 1999 turned out to be one of the most memorable, amazing runs in recent minor league baseball history! I was there for every pitch and every bus ride. I witnessed every moment, as the season crystalized into one for the ages. Complete with future Big Leaguers such as Josh Hamilton, Matt Diaz, Jorge Cantu and Edwin Rodriguez, the season was a continuous series of unexpected turns. Following the season, I spent seven months holed up in a downtown apartment, transcribing thousands of hours of taped interviews and culling pages of notes. I´d make phone calls to players - recalling my recollection of events, in an effort to piece together an accurate and exciting recap of the season. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Rossman.

Olivia Smith viewed the world through a narrow window. Her ideals were as blurred and bumpy as old glass - and her opinions were based on what she assumed lied beyond her limited view. But the summer Olivia turned 13, things changed. An unusual heat settled on her small town - strange feelings for Jared Wahl, the neighbor boy she had grown up with, began to stir - and, most horribly, her beautiful, rich cousin, Penelope, the daughter of an Ethiopian super model, had come to stay with them while her parents were in Europe. With the help of an eccentric old woman named Ms. Stella, the girls, opposites in every way, learn acceptance and glean wisdom from an unlikely source - each other. This book is a celebration of womanhood in all its incarnations - be it the naive ideals of a 13 year old girl - or the hardened wisdom and fun musings of an 85 year old woman. 1. Language: English.
